The October 2 Washington Post carried this George F. Will column. The column seems to predict that the Republican Party will hold a national presidential convention in June 2016 instead of either late August or early September. The column also seems to suggest this is a good idea.
But Professor Josh Putnam has this column in response. Putnam is the nation’s leading expert on presidential primary timing, and he argues that Will has overlooked many obstacles to the Republican Party holding a June convention.
